  • Most Popular Baby Names of 2013

    2013 is just hours away from being history and that makes it a perfect time to look back at some of the most popular baby names of the year. has put together its list, which shows the trends skewing away from the once popular and outlandish celebrity names, to more traditional names from yesteryear.

    New moms and dads in 2013 took a look back to their family trees to choose meaningful names from their distant relatives rather than trendy names, the list shows. Old fashioned names like Hannah, Victoria, Annabelle and Lucy all made the top 100 list for girls names. For the boys, classics like John, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Luke and William all made the top 100.

    The top three names for 2013 were Sophia, Emma and Olivia for the girls and Jackson, Aiden and Liam for the boys. It’s the fourth year in a row that Sophia has topped the list. Jackson is making its debut topping the boys list for the first time, while Aiden is no stranger to the top (the name previously held the number one spot for eight years!).

    A poll done by the site had an overwhelming amount of new moms (81 percent) choosing names that were classics over less than half (43 percent) who chose unusual or unique names.

    About the same percentage of moms who chose classic names also picked their names before their new baby was born (80 percent). About 63 percent of respondents said they weren’t fans of celebrity-inspired names or trend names.

    Here are the top 10 names for 2013 for both boys and girls:

  • Looking Back at 2013

    The gifting season is in full swing and before you know it, we’ll have rung in the New Year and 2013 will be behind us. But before that all happens, we wanted to take a break from bundling up Blooming Baths to be sent all over the world and reflect on all the great things that have happened in 2013.

    Winter 2013 – Blooming Bath Gets Star Struck

    We kicked off 2013 right by heading to Hollywood to show off our baby bath tubs to celebrity moms and dads at the Boom Boom Room’s Pre-Golden Globe Gifting Suite event. Not only did we get some great shots of some of our favorite entertainers with the Blooming Bath for babies bathtub, we also made relationships with a lot of other great baby products companies while we were there.

    Spring 2013 – Blooming Bath Gives Back

    In the springtime, Blooming Bath was honored to be able to get involved with an amazing nonprofit organization called Operation Shower. The organization supports military families by delivering baby showers to expectant moms who spouses are deployed. Blooming Bath was proud to be a sponsor of the organization and to have the ability to participate in the organization’s Hawaii baby shower event.

    Summer 2013 – Baby Craziness

    Let’s face it - pretty much everything baby related that happened in the summer of 2013 centered around the new royal, Prince George, being born across the pond. While a number of publications (including HELLO! In Canada) featured the Blooming Bath as a gift fit for a prince, we’ve yet to confirm that the wee lad has in fact, had the luxury of bathing in one of our posh tubs. (We’ll be sure to keep you posted).

    Fall 2013 – Blooming Bath Goes Big

    During the fall, Blooming Bath hit a huge milestone when it announced that our products could be purchased online at Babies “R” Us, America’s leading baby retailer. The news also meant that parents-to-be can register for the Blooming Bath for babies bathtub on the Babies “R” Us gift registry for their baby shower gifts.

    During the fall the Blooming Bath was also named as a She Knows Parenting Award winner for 2013 in the Newborn Essentials category. It’s the second year that Blooming Bath has been recognized in the awards.

    So as you can see, we’ve had a lot to celebrate in 2013 and we are looking forward to even more exciting updates heading into 2014. But until then, we've got to getting back to shipping out Blooming Baths.

    Speaking of shipping, don't forget to order before the holidays. Right now when you order on you can upgrade to priority mail (3-day delivery) at the standard shipping price of $7.


  • Blooming Bath Featured on Red Tricycle


    At Blooming Bath, we are all about having fun. Maybe that’s why we get along so well with the folks over at Red Tricycle, whose stated mission is to, “help parents have more fun with their kids.” The website offers loads of tips and suggestions on innovative ways to have fun with your kids (and babies).

    Today, we are excited to report that Red Tricycle has added the Blooming Bath for babies bathtub to its ever-growing list of ways that parents can have fun with their kids (by using it during baby bath time, of course).

    The Blooming Bath was recently featured in Red Tricycle’s “Splish Splash: 14 Essentials for Baby’s Bath” alongside a boatload of other great baby bath items.

    We couldn’t agree more with Red Tricycle when they say that “bath time is bonding time.” From the comfiest baby bath tub, to hooded towels, to water temperature testers, their list of baby bathing essentials includes everything you need to ensure that bath time is both easy and fun.

    When it comes to the perfect tub, Red Tricycle asks readers to “Picture your flower child kicking back on plush petals. The cushioned cradle can be simply popped in the dryer when you’re done.”

    The Blooming Bath flower not only appeals to baby’s sensibilities, the benefit for parents are quickly apparent when they realize there are no more aches and pains from awkwardly trying to cradle baby in the sink during bath time.

    Check out the Red Tricycle’s entire list of baby bathing essentials, here.
